Import via csv a work log with both worked and billed time

I can already import a csv file with the work log with worked time, as follows:

RM2FO-588,RM 2.0 FO,RM2FO,Desc1,Test;20110802;user;1800

But haven't found a way to import the billed time to the same work log.

Is it possible to import billed time in CSV?

If you want to import this into tempo with a check box that can be used for Billed time.. I think you are out of luck.


  1. Upload Billed Time into another Custom Field and add this to TEMPO as exported field and create a Billed Time tag in TEMPO going forward.
  2. Add time spent and billed time together in seconds format and upload via CSV


When I Log work manually the billed field is available, what you're saying is that I can't import both the worked and billed by CSV. Ex: worked = 150 min; billed = 120 min

I think only via JSON you will be able to import into Tempo as it will need to be direct. Worked relates to Time Spent a JIRA field. I'm pretty sure it's not possible via CSV

For historical data just create a custom field.. for this Billed Time and use the Billed Time in Worklog which is tempo going forward. You can still associate the custom field with a TEMPO export

Worked = Time Spent (Native to JIRA) Billed is configured by Tempo?

Yes, and its used in the imesheets reports for tempo
